Automating Maintenance Tasks with AdWords Scripting Part 3

In our final installment of automating the monthly maintenance tasks found in AdWords for Dummies with AdWords scripting, let's end with the end of the month clean up of your account.

Declutter your account by shedding keywords that don't have any conversions.


Similar to the previous post, you will need to have set up conversion tracking for all of this to work.  We can actually use a variation of the previous script to accomplish this.  Really we are doing the same thing just increasing bids instead of decreasing them.

function main() {
  var THE_VALUE_OF_ONE_CONVERSION = 10;
  var DECREASE_BIDS_BY_PERCENTAGE = .5;
  
  var kw_iter = AdWordsApp.keywords()
    .withCondition("Status = ENABLED")
    .get();
  
  while(kw_iter.hasNext()) {
    var kw = kw_iter.next();
    var kw_stats = kw.getStatsFor("LAST_30_DAYS");
    var cost = kw_stats.getCost();
    var conversions = kw_stats.getConversions();
    if(conversions == 0) {
      if(THE_VALUE_OF_ONE_CONVERSION * 5 > cost) {
        kw.pause();
      }
      else if(THE_VALUE_OF_ONE_CONVERSION * 2 > cost) {
        kw.setMaxCpc(kw.getMaxCpc() * (1-DECREASE_BIDS_BY_PERCENTAGE)); 
      }
    }else{
      //no conversions on this keyword
      //we will deal with that later
      continue;
    }
  }
}

Thanks,
Russ
